A Cuban spy who is an FIU professor and an editorial page contributor to the Miami Herald sounds Tom Clancy-ish. But unfortunately, it apparently belongs in the non-fiction section. The scenario is laid out in detail on a post from a local blogger, Henry Gomez of Babalu, and is featured in RealClearWorld – an offshoot of the very popular political web site, RealClearPolitics, owned by Time Inc.
That means that this story has now gone mainstream, which should prove to be an interesting time to watch how the Miami Herald handles this. The supposed spy, Marifeli Pérez-Stable, was outed publicly by Chris Simmons, who has been a Counterintelligence Officer since 1987 and worked on cases involving Cuba.
